    New York City is installing more speed cameras near schools.
     
    The announcement was made Tuesday outside Public School 95 in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. The Department of Transportation has classified the area as a high-crash corridor.

    “Our kids are going to be safer walking to school and coming home because of this new enforcement," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. "We are sending a powerful message that we take safety near our schools seriously, and we will enforce the law to keep children safe."
     
    Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg says drivers should take heed as students return to school on Thursday.
     
    New York City already had 20 of the devices. Legislation signed into law in June authorized up to 120 more.
     
    Speeders caught by the cameras will be mailed a $50 ticket.
